Read full description of the books:
Read to my daughters - ages 4 & 6. They both quite liked it. Nearly every chapter ended with a cliffhanger of sorts and it drove my daughters crazy when I put down the book without reading "one more chapter!"
As a child, I spent a couple of years living in a tropical country with poisonous centipedes. I was bitten a couple of times, once in bed in the middle of the night (!!), and was reluctantly amused by the centipedes' anthropomorphization. My daughters were much more sympathetic to the young centipedes escapades and scrapes than I was.
I recommend this for kids in the 4-8 age range.

Read information about the authorLynne Reid Banks is a British author of books for children and adults. She has written forty books, including the best-selling children's novel The Indian in the Cupboard, which has sold over 10 million copies and been made into a film.
Banks was born in London, the only child of James and Muriel Reid Banks. She was evacuated to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada during World War II but returned after the war was over. She attended St Teresa's School in Surrey. Prior to becoming a writer Banks was an actress, and also worked as a television journalist in Britain, one of the first women to do so. Her first novel, The L-Shaped Room, was published in 1960.
In 1962 Banks emigrated to Israel, where she taught for eight years on an Israeli kibbutz Yasur. In 1965 she married Chaim Stephenson, with whom she had three sons. Although the family returned to England in 1971 and Banks now lives in Dorset with her husband, the influence of her time in Israel can be seen in some of her books which are set partially or mainly on kibbutzim.
